If you haven’t heard, Steve Wynn has stepped down as the finance chair of the Republican Party.
Fox News ran a story on Sunday detailing Wynn’s contributions to Democrats over the years.

The network is getting slammed over the report, given that Wynn was literally the fundraiser-in-chief of the Republican Party.
Many in the media took the opportunity to attack Fox. Here is a taste of the incoming criticism over this report.
This is laughable. If they asked you as a journalist to get in front of a camera and do this, wouldn’t you ask questions? https://t.co/Hz1EOqQL58

Wynn was Finance Chairman of the Republican National Committee. He donated millions to GOP candidates and hosted a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser for Trump last week.

Not a good look.
It’s one thing to provide a different, right-leaning view when reporting on a story. It’s another to disregard the point in a blatant attempt to spin.
